I was very confused by the old description of this walk as it indicated access only from the Caravan Park. I ended up scaling the rock at the end of the beach to cut the track near the lookout. Having now walked it twice, hopefully my new details will help other walkers.
Short Description:
This circular walk around Agnes Water Headland, including its Lookout, provides great views north up Agnes Water Beach to 1770 Headland and to the south along Chinaman's Beach.
Getting there:
Take Round Hill Road to Agnes Water and turn right onto Springs Road. After 700m, turn left into the Community Centre, Information Centre and Museum complex and park at the back of the Museum.
Maps:
The Agnes Water & Town of 1770 Visitor Map is available from the Visitor Centre on Springs Road, Agnes Water.
Route/Trail notes:
This walk has a number of access points, but the official start is from the car park behind the Museum, where will find an information board map. Head out and after 100m on the left is 'access 1, opposite the police station'. After a further 100m branch left and skirt around a dam and head towards the lookout 'access 2, from Caravan Park'. Just before the lookout is 'access 3, the cliff face at the end of the beach'.
Leaving the lookout, branch left until you reach 'access 4, the Camping Site', with the option to walk down onto Workman's Beach, before following the path beside the camp access road and then turning right to head back to the start.
Permits/Costs:
None.
Other References/Comments:
Remember to take your swimmers and towel, for a quick dip on one of the beaches.
